Secret Service is a Swedish pop band, which was at the peak of its popularity in the early 1980’s. They released 8 albums and 20 singles. Since the popularity of pop music started to wane in the mid 1980’s, the band stopped making the charts.
In 1979, Ola Hakansson, who used to sing for Ola and Janglers, joined Tim Norell and Ulf Wahlberg to record a few songs for a Swedish music festival. They called themselves Ola+3. The band didn’t win but was so inspired by the work that decided to stay together a while longer under the name of Secret Service. Some time later, the trio was joined by Tony Lindberg, Leif Paulsen, and Leif Johansson.
The band’s first single “Oh Susie” (1979) was a hit in Sweden. It got into the top-10 in the European charts, including #9 in Germany and #6 in Norway. Later the same year, the group released album Oh Susie, which included another one of their hits “Ten O’Clock Postman”. The single went golden in Scandinavia.
